I've had some realizations about myself over the past 24 hours that I am excited, yet nervous to share for risk of judgment or criticism. However, I think it is important to share as real as I can, so that if there is one person out there struggling with the same thing, they can relate and share in my journey.
My realization? I have a food addiction and I struggle with binge eating. You might wonder, how has it taken you 26 years to discover this. Well, it hasn't really, but I've blown it off thinking there's no way I can't just "Fix" this myself. But, let me tell you guys, easier said than done.
I had one cookie the other day. One cookie turned into four, turned into a bite of cheesecake, a bite of pizza and a piece of candy. This time, I was able to shut it off and start fresh the next day, but normally it would have trickled into the weekend and spiraled out of control, causing me to hate myself Monday morning.
It's real. It's not glamorous, but it's life. And I want to share this not so pretty stuff because I know there are others out there like me.
